Probably the best tire you can buy that is great on asphalt and reasonably competent off-road. I've run Avon Trailriders and like them a lot. Good longevity, fair in gravel, and great on asphalt. My initial review of these Shinko 705's is good on gravel, and great on asphalt with longevity remaining to be seen. On my CB 500X I can grab a fist full of throttle now on the 705's whereas I had to be more careful with the Avon Trailriders. If you are mainly an asphalt rider and have intentions of riding fire roads with any frequency and want a tire that has some competence, I would highly recommend these.
I have run several of the 705’s between my Triumph Tiger and Yamaha Ténéré. They are a good reasonably priced tire, I get around 6,000 miles from the rear tire and 10k miles from the front. Predictable handling, ok on gravel but there are better tires off road. No issues in the rain but I don’t ride them hard in those situations.
Miles 250, definitely more road noise than Battlewings. Slide into a ditch 4x4 groove on a gravel road 1mph nap for the Strom. Figures never did that on the BW502/501s.
I put these on my 2014 DL1000A to get better performance on gravel roads. They give a very sure footed feel there. On pavement you can lean them way over and they are fine in the rain. Dinged them a star for straight line tracking but i just bought another set. See you on the fire roads!
